O Vello Cabalo Furado

Reviewed By madamedefarge - Derby, United Kingdom

We ate here during our short stop in Tui. It is just along the street from the pension where we stayed, so very handy. It doesn't look like much from the outside and, arguably, looks even less from the inside. But the decor belies the quality of the food within. Don't let the looks put you off.
We ate there for the Menu del Dia - 9€ when we went. For that, we had a good choice of starter, main and dessert, with a bottle of wine and bread along for the ride. The kitchen is open, so you can see the chef hard at work preparing the fresh ingredients. We had the Caldo Gallego (a traditional soup) and stuffed eggs for starters - both of which were lovely and tasty. For mains, we had rabbit stew and (inadvertently) fried eggs and chips. Again, these were great. The desserts were almond tart (a Tarte Santiago I think) and an egg flan.
As other reviewers have said, the portions were generous and excellent value. We speak some Spanish, so ordering was easy enough, but I don't think the staff spoke much English. They seem very proud of what they do, as they have the names of the chef and waiter outside alongside the menus. I rather liked this, as it showed a nice personal touch.
We were the first to order lunch, at around 1.30, but it became busier after 2ish, with locals. It is worth going into, as I suspect that it's a bit oriented towards locals and not a tourist trap. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food and would recommend it to anyone who wants a slice of wholesome Spanish food. Definitely enjoyed this one.

Fortaleza

Reviewed By Jennifer V

I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised at how good they prepared the bacalhau (dried, salted cod). We ordered the grilled one and once it was served, it didn't last very long. It was well prepared, delicious, and of generous portions. The corn bread they serve was delish, too! I couldn't complain about the price as I thought it was reasonable. I know his will be a place to return to every time I visit Portugal.

Solar do Bacalhau

Reviewed By BeastiePV - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Enjoyed a decently priced pilgrim’s lunch at this small restaurant around the Cathedral in old fort in Valenca. Included soup, chicken, rice, fries, dessert and coffee. Tasty? Not so much. Perhaps readers should check what others have said about the codfish, which is a house specialty. Friendly and helpful service.

A Muralla

Reviewed By nanapapa-6 - Gaithersburg, Maryland

This is not a fancy restaurant, nor do you get food with little foo-foo sauces. This is simply very fresh food, cooked just for you by one man who loves taking good care of his customers. My husband and I spent 3 nights in Tui and ate here twice. First time we had the seafood sampler for two which was enormous and only 24 euro -- swordfish, salmon, etc with wonderful fresh greens and delicious ripe tomatoes. Second time we had grilled sirloin on a skewer and swordfish with another huge salad of greens, tomatoes, onions and a large side of french fries. The wine selection is very good -- we had a 2012 Rioja Crianza for $12 euro. Demetrio is a one-man show, and he does a terrific job of cooking and serving and anticipating your needs. He also makes a very good and very light torta de queso with strawberry sauce. This restaurant is off the main drag and probably doesn't get a lot of walk-by traffic. But we think it was a wonderful meal for a terrific price -- also a very nice atmosphere sitting out on the balcony with a view of the sun setting over Valenca!

Bar Monte Aloia

Reviewed By SueBrown0 - Kingsbridge, United Kingdom

This bar/restaurant is in a privileged position at the top of the natural park. The welcome is sincere, the food outstanding in both quality and value; portion sizes are enormous and everything homemade. Despite being very busy on a summer Sunday on one of our visits, service was very efficient and friendly.

We decided to stop for lunch in Tui, but the restaurant we headed to, was closed, so I looked for an alternative in the area, and came across this place. I could not be more pleased with the outcome.

Tapas e vinos

Reviewed By jorgebaiaomiguel - London, United Kingdom

We found this pleasant and cosy place by accident just near the town Cathedral, it has a very good value.
Decoration is really nice with a mix of young, wooden, traditional and artisan vibes.
We had:
- Rioja red (Appellation of Controlled Origin). wine (1.80€) per glass, came with bread and traditional chourizo for free.
- Cheese plate, (2.50€) excellent presentation variety and quality(pictures) apple jam and poppy seeds Came with more traditional bread for free.
- Iberic Porc steak on toast, (2.50€)
- Chourizo and quail egg on toast (2.50€)
This is ideal for small groups of people who want to know a bit of local food .
They also do large groups as they have a room on the top floor but we didnt go there
next time we will have dinner there.
